I've returned!!!!

I returned last night from the most wonderful adventure. I started out early Monday morning toward Metamora Michigan to visit my friend and second mom,Tish. It was a beautiful day for a drive and before I knew it I was pulling into the drive. This was a much needed trip to de-stress a bit and have some quiet girl time. I couldn't show up empty handed and with my muse gallivanting around who knows where for months, I only had Wed thru Saturday to create some gifts. I wanted to make Tish a water bottle holder and she loves purple so I finished this one first.

 Then I wanted to use a clasp she had sent me and I made this purse. The finished photo is still in my camera which is charging at the moment so I will share more of the trip when it is ready.

Then I made a similar bag for Jan with a clasp she had given me last year. Again, the photo is in the camera (sorry)

This is just a quick hello until I get unpacked and my camera is fully charged. I hope you all have a great weekend.....I'll be back soon with more updates.


  1. What beautiful gifts, Pat!

  3. Hi Pat, Glad you're back safe and sound. It was an absolute pleasure to talk to you and Tish. What a delight.
    I love the water bottle purse you make for Tish. It's beautiful and I'll bet she loved it.
    Your purse is so stunning. I think you said that you used Shannon's fabrics. What a wonderful combination her exqusite fabrics and your creativity.
